Meet the Grrlz Pt. 2

Yesterday I told you about Jinx. I wasn't able to get her kitten pictures scanned last night, but here is another of my favorites of her:
She used to sleep in my open drawers alot. I think it was to hide from Bug:

So, yes, that brings us to Bug Juice. Bug Juice is an Oregon kitty as I got her when I lived in Roseburg, Oregon. She was a stray that my supervisor at the library brought to work in hopes of finding her a home. Bug was a smelly kitten (now she's a master groomer!) and had quite the personality. Jinx was none to happy when I brought her home, and this picture shows them as close as they would get at that time:
This really is the quintessential "Kitty Grrlz" picture! :)

During this time in Oregon, Jinx steered clear of Bug, often hiding out in the closet full of boxes:
From Oregon, I moved to California briefly. Here is a picture of them both in my display cases:
They both actually went in there *willingly* I did not put them in there!

After a year or so in California I wised up and realized I truly was a Mid-Western girl at heart and returned to Wisconsin. This is when Jinx really mellowed alot and Bug got fat(er)!
Then, in 2004, Jinx died. It was really traumatic because I should have known something was wrong and didn't get her to the vet in time. I'm pretty sure she died in my arms on the way there. I still miss her--she used to sleep by my head every night and had a bad habit of always following me into the bathroom--of course she did this to beg for water from the tap--she loved to drink out of the sink faucet.

That left a hole in "kitty grrlz", but Bug has stepped up and been a great help to my crafting . . . umm, well, not *really* but she tries:
